Application Procedure


This application is for students who entered as freshman (not transfer students) and are pursuing the Psychology major.  Admission into the major will also be based on a student's academic performance in the preparation for major courses.  Students must have a minimum of a 2.5 GPA in the preparatory coursework to be eligible to apply. Note: Students who have at least a 2.9 prep GPA will be guaranteed admission into the major. Students with a prep GPA of 2.5-2.89 will enter a competitive applicant pool. 


  • The 2014 Psychology Major application is now available. The earliest students are allowed to apply for admission into the major is Summer after their 1st year.  The latest students are allowed to apply is during Fall quarter of their 3rd year. The deadline to apply is December 19, 2014. 
  • Applicants who have met all requirements with a minimum 2.9 prep GPA will be notified of admissions approximately 4 weeks after date of submission.  For example, students who are applying in mid-July will be notified in mid-August. Admissions decisions for students in the competitive applicant pool will be sent via email in late January 2015.
  • If you have completed any pre-psychology preparatory courses at an institution other than UCLA (including a Community College, UCLA Extension, etc.) it is your responsibility to submit those transcripts to the UCLA Admissions Office so that they may post to your record by the application deadline (it can take up to 2-3 months to post).
